Processing

Uninsured patients served by BJCBH & BHP may have their prescriptions filled at the BJCBH Pharmacy. However, the funds currently provided by the DMH for psychotropic medications are less than the cost of the new generation antidepressants and antipsychotics. To provide continuity of care with the best medications available, eligible patients should use pharmaceutical company Patient Medication Assistance Programs for more expensive medications. These companies generally require participation by the treating psychiatrist.
  • The BJCBH Pharmacy formulary is made up of "Gap" and "Non-Gap" medications
  • For "Gap" medications, a pharmaceutical company Patient Assistance Program application should be made for eligible patients
    • Uninsured BJCBH & BHP patients generally meet the financial requirements
    • The pharmacy provides medication for the first 60 days of treatment, which allows time for the patient assistance application to be processed
Pharmaceutical company Patient Assistance Programs must be used for continued services to BJCBH & BHP patients. These programs are physician-centered and based, not pharmacy-based. The pharmacy will help with additional forms and information, especially for those medications listed as "GAP" in our formulary.
